XXX and Firebird would overlap a lot. Zone will skip. Pig less and since the Firebird skips the Pig would overlap less. It is possible to straighten out a Rhyno with power so the Pig will fade more reliably and it handles more wind. I prefer the TDs to the Valk because they handle the wind better. An overstable mid is the most useful for straightish throws in hard winds. For other lines you can power down an overstable driver until it reaches the distance you can get with an overstable putter. If you want a minimal bag. A mid haas the advantage of not skipping as much. But at times having some skip is nice. Jokeri is not that hard fading for short tight turns that have ceilings. If you trust skip shots then it might be enough given those constraints. Does the Zero Pure fly straight far when hyzered or annied before the flight angle kicks in like the Opto does? Or will it turn a lot in a short space unlike the Opto Pure? If it does you don't need anything understable. I would use the FD because you don't have anything inherently understable that moves to the right quickly. Have you putted with a 165-169 Pure yet? That adds glide and reduces the power you need to generate so you'll be more accurate and consistent.

Sentinels are fair at not skipping and not terribly tall and longer than the Zone because their overstability is different. The Zone fades immediately and the Sentinel flies straight for a long while with a hard fade. OTOH the Sentinel and the Wasp are pretty similar but for me the Sentinel feels thinner. I heard that early Hornets weren't as HSS as later ones and i only have an early one. And have never thrown later ones so i don't know how those work. Early ones couldn't handle headwinds. Hornets are fast and tend to skip on landing at high power or when hyzered.
Leopard is the king of straight shots and it is easy to get moving to the right fast and far because the fade is the least out of every driver. The FD is much faster and flips and fades more and goes way farther. Both have a low power requirement. The FD does a wide s-curve at power when released flat or hyzer flipped to flat it fades around like a Teebird but getting farther. FD is good when you don't want to or cannot rip at 100 % power. Frankly i prefer River because it flips and fades less making it a much straighter disc. River is like a longer faster Leopard so it can be made to move to the right quickly too. GL River is less fading than Opto by a little. GL has a tackier grip which is great for all year round use in Finland.
